I am originally from England and have just got my Green Card and Social Security number in the United States.
I am still currently using my English driving license and am insured on my wife's car using that.
I was wondering, how long is it ok for me to carry on using my English license in the United States?
Also, I currently live in Rhode Island and their DMV has told me I can get a permit after a written test but I may have to wait up to 6 months to do a road test in order to get my full license. What does the permit allow me to do? Can I theoretically buy, insure and drive my own car with the permit, while waiting for the test or am I better off using my English license until I get the full RI one?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
